Blackberry 8800 Entering numbers during call

I have a blackberry 8800


My employer has a telephone system which calls me to offer a job.  In order to hear the job offer I have to enter my ID (an 8 digit number) followed by * and then my password (a 6 digit number) followed by *.


I can't enter any numbers during the call.  Is there a key I should be hitting before I start to enter my ID?


It works fine on my home phone.

Please use plain text.

Re: Blackberry 8800 Entering numbers during call

I think that during a phone call the keypad is defaulted to type letters. Just press the "Alt" button on the left (next to the 7/Z key) while you're typing and it will register numbers instead of letters.
